Flyers Host Sabres in Another Must-Win Game on Sunday Afternoon

Yesterday afternoon, the Flyers found themselves in a must-win situation. Prior to the game, they sat six points back of the Boston Bruins. The Bruins, who have two games in hand, could have stretched their lead for that last playoff spot to eight with a win. The Flyers, however, live to see another day. With a strong game from Travis Konecny and Brian Elliott, Philadelphia sprung themselves to a 3-2 victory. This puts them only four points back of Boston going into Sunday afternoon’s games.

Boston plays the Washington Capitals, who are battling for the top of the division lead.
